What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
Prospective students most definitely should go on a tour of the school. Adelphi was my second choice school until I went on a tour of the school. Learning about Adelphi and seeing everything that would be available to me at the school changed my mind. On top of all of that the campus is extremely beautiful. When applying for Adelphi make sure you provide every singe activity and volunteer work you were involved in. The school might consider you for a recognition scholarship. Also in the activities that you are involved in try to gain a leadership position.
Stefani from Ronkonkoma, NY
Get involved on campus. The school offers plenty of opportunities to get involved in something that interests you. As a new student, meeting people may not come naturally to you. However, joining these clubs and organizations is a great way to meet new people with similar interesting. Additionally, these extracurricular activities are ideal for de-stressing after class.
Amber from Southington, CT
For prospective students I would say get involved as much as possible. There is a lot to offer at Adelphi.
Cassandra from Dix Hills, NY
If planning to attend Adelphi, come with a welcoming personality! People are always introducing themselves to others which builds strong friendships at the end. Take advantage of all the activities on campus because you will learn more about yourself and about others.
Dhimitra from East Elmhurst, NY
Although you would think that having a social life is essential, you also need to stay focus on school. You can have both social and great grades, just learn to manage the two. JOIN CLUBS!

always do research on everything you can before hand. even though it is crazy to think about your future before senior year, it is a better way to get a head start. because i am the first one to attend a university in my family, my parents or relatives didn't exactly know what to do or where to ask help. so, i had look up and find all the bits of information i could on my own. it takes more than a day to find everything and not everything is on google. my best advice is talk to a teacher, your guidance counselor, or someone you know who has a great knowledge on college and the transition process.

The staff wants you to study something you're passionate about. So do it. Pick something you love to study, and professors will recognize your attitude, and internships and jobs will open up for you.
Lindsey from Easton, PA
When you are making your schedule for college courses, make sure to put them at times where they are convenient for you. I'd rather not have classes in the morning or on Fridays. I was very lucky to achieve that for next Fall, but this doesn't always happen the way you want. If you are going to be living in a residence hall, make sure you are on good terms with your prospective roommate by setting standards. If you can't get along within two weeks, make sure to switch to another room. One last thing is the most important. Since it is college, everyone should enjoy it. If you want to be part of something, join it, take initiative. No one will be there to tell you what to do and when to do it. Don't be one of those kids that just goes to class, grab some food, and go home/back to your room. This is a time for self-motivation and thinking for yourself. Hope this helps!
Catherine from Deer Park, NY
classic mistake- don't have class every day. i'm a freshman and i only have class 3 days a week. you have power now! also, if you're not a morning person, don't pretend to be. i have 8am class because i love busy mornings and lazy afternoons :)
Thelma from New York, NY
Do well on your AP exams, they pay off dearly.
